UK Youth Mobility Visa


rain 22 °C

Finally after what seemed like an eternity, my UK youth mobility visa arrived!!!

Let’s get this show on the road!

Flights booked – Arriving Heathrow in time for tea on Saturday 3rd March 2012. Thats.. only 8 sleeps! EEEEEP!!

Accommodation booked – Firstly in The Earls Court Hotel for a few days in my own room (with ensuite!) so I have a somewhat comfortable sleep and the ability to get over any jet lag. Then move on down the road for the rest of the week at Equity Point London Hostel staying in a 4 bed female dorm room. Now that will be an experience! Haha but it will provide me with a way to meet people and have someone to check out the sights with. Dodgy accomodation but hey, I am a simple person on a Backbacker budget.

Work training booked – I managed to send the 8 accumulated documents required to Kellie at ENA. The place that will be providing me with a means to replenish the bank account, and a place to sleep and eat for the following 3 months. A week’s training begins on 12 March, then hopefully I will have a client not long after that.

Travel Insurance purchased – I really am not planning on losing my luggage, getting sick, or breaking bones whilst skiing…but, you never know.

I’ve downloaded a trusty London Tube Map app onto my phone and have mapped out my way to each hotel. However daunting the Tube map is, it seems quite easy to navigate… at least in theory.

So now that everything is almost organised I shall remove myself from my 2day old nest and get packing.

Holy Kylie, you are sooooo organised! Remember that conversation we had about personality types..hahaha. Tube is really easy to navigate, so don't worry about that. Good call on the hotel for a few nights, nothing worse than needing to sleep and staying in a hostel. Hopefully I will have a place in London by the time you get here so we can hang out :) Excited! xx
